after few days of using new gmail compose, i have to admit it is really great.
what i like most is that i can open the new compose in a new window and make it full screen.
in the chat format, which i hated at first, it is good because it allows me to see the inbox, task list, and other compose windows.
i guess this is that multitasking google spoke about.
it reminds me to share google drive documents.
i still resent the added clicks for adding recipients on cc and expanding the compose to full screen, but i got used to it.
bravo to google!
however, i still really think it is a bad business practice to change the product so much without leaving the previous features as an option.
